Colorado River Indian Reservation


This Reservation is located in Arizona and California, with most being in Arizona. Below is a map of Colorado River Reservation and links to google earth photos of Poston which is capital of CRR. California does not recognize this Reservation being in California. We don't recognize this Reservation being in California nor do we recognize where most people live in Parker, Arizona which is a predominantly white town. Colorado River Reservation is located along Colorado River. Thus, this name for their Reservation. Originally, Chemehuevi and Mojave Tribes, were first to live at Colorado River Reservation. Around 80 years after it was established, groups of Hopi and Navajo were allowed to settle down on this Reservation, which is 100's of miles from Hopi and Navajo Reservation. Chemehuevi People are Shoshonean or as Senor Don Antonio Garcia Cubas listed them, Comanche-Shoshone. He described their language family as Mexican-Opata Language Family. Today, it's known as Uto-Aztecan Language Family. Shoshone People are Ojibway. We know from 19th century Ojibway authors they are Ojibway. Peter Jones wrote that Ojibway Language was spoken from Mississippi Rivers headwaters or source (it's located in southwest Montana which is where Shoshone People lived), to Red Rivers headwaters or source. It's located in Texases Panhandle. Andrew Blackbird wrote that Ojibway Language was extensively spoken among Shoshone People. Mojave or Mohave People are closely related to Chemehuevi Indians. They speak a dialect within Mexican-Opata Language family related to Comanche-Shoshone. However, it's a distinct dialect or a part of Opata-Pima Dialect which includes El Yuma Language. Hopi People are Ojibway also. Their language is a dialect within Comanche-Shoshone as well. Colorado River Indian Reservation has been violated by American leaders who broke treaty agreements. However, there's evidence that must be investigated that can correct this Ojibway Reservations boundaries. Parker is located at this Reservations extreme north boundary. Colorado River Reservation was created on March 3, 1865. However, it's boundaries were not officially created until May 15, 1876. Colorado River Reservation covers an area of land that's 432.0 sq. mi. or 1,119 sq. km. Population of Colorado River Reservation according to 2010's census, is 9,201. CRR's demographics are very difficult to determine. According to 2010's census, CRR's Indian population is listed at 7,077. However, that's deceitful. They reported that of their 7,077 citizens, 2,414 considered themselves Indian. We must exclude most of Parker which covers 22.0 sq. mi. or 57.0 sq. km. Parker has a population of 3,083 according to 2010's census. We consider Mohave Road to be Parker's south city limit. Below are Demographics of Colorado River Indian Reservation. Remember, we don't consider most of Parker being within this Reservation nor do we accept land in California. Mexican's make up most of CRR's population. Including CRR's Indian, Mexican and mixed population, CRR south of Mohave Road near Parker, has a population of between 4,000 and 5,000.
